Yvonne Onah 

Yvonne is currently in her ninth month of working as a part 1 architectural assistant for Baynes and Mitchell Architects in London. After, graduating from Canterbury School of Architecture in 2015, Yvonne took some time out, to travel and complete a few individual projects, located in the UK and in Lithuania,  before  deciding to continue to progress toward her dream of becoming an architect.

"The Stephen Lawrence trust was a great help to me. I joined both the building future programmes and the graduate pathways programme in early 2016. This gave me access to career building workshops, which helped me with everything from interview techniques, to simply having someone to talk to and ask for advice. My connection with the foundation proved transcendent, after I managed to secure my position at Baynes and Mitchell Architects, after just one month into joining the programmes, and with my interview taking place the day after a brilliant workshop I attended about self-image". 

 

Since then, the Trust has been completely supportive through work life. I have shared what I’ve learned to new people I’ve met, also aspiring to study architecture, and talked to secondary pupils about what they want from the future, amongst other things. The Stephen Lawrence Trust has given me the means to be active within our community and it’s an honour to be able to give back to them, through my involvement in the HUB project; sharing my ideas on the redevelopment of such an influential building is a privilege.

Elizabeth Mitchell-Yankah

 

After completing her Bachelors degree at Greenwich University, Elizabeth then went on to study her Masters in Architecture at the University of East London, graduating with distinction. 

She has had positions in Urban planning, finance, conservation, surveying of public spaces, and in residential Architecture as a Part II Architectural Assistant with Robert Dye Architects.

Her personal projects consist of fusing the function of a space with accessibility, exposing what was once hidden, and employing an innovative approach to the status quo of conventional design; always asking How, Why and what else can be done? What doesn't work and how can it be changed? 

"I joined to Trust in October to be part of the community spirit they embodied. Wonderfully my membership to the trust occurred just a short time before they announced the launch of their Re-Imagining Adjaye project and I decided to jump right in, eager to be a part of a pivotal moment in the future of the Charity."

In the past she has received awards in Athletics, science and poetry and is working hard to add more outstanding Architectural achievements to her mantel.

"Being with the trust has provided me with a architecturally focused community to touch base with, and endless opportunities to learn more through the lectures and events they hold and provide access to. A Great bonus of being part of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust is that, at the same time as being a recipient of their help, you are given the chance to feed something back in, enriching your engagement and strengthening the realisation of your ability to contribute and make a difference."

Samira Osman

Samira completed her undergraduate at Ravensbourne in 2015 and worked as both a CAD technician and resident artist since. 

"Currently I'm working on building a design house called Studio Somalia, a community driven project exploring art and architecture in the Horn of Africa.
Since joining the SLT building futures program I've been given the opportunity to network with exciting people and attend a variety of brilliant workshops. My favourite was the Innovation in Architecture and Engineering class at the V&A, where we were able to explore the ideas behind sustainable design and experiment with 3D scanning & printing as a mode of archiving. I'm excited to be involved in future projects".
